The positives: The writing is nicely done, and the storyline nicely organized. Battle scenes are just ok.
The negatives: The storyline is predictable, the ending was a 50% cliff hangar(which is a pet peeve of mine), the narration is ok. So, the narrator doesn't help this book, but it doesn't hurt it terribly. He shows enough variation with the different characters to keep the story understandable. However, his tone is a little too monotone, so it does become annoying. I would recommend this book for young adult, but there is a bit of sex...which doesn't really add to the story, which is unfortunate, since it would have added some more readers.
I will probably get book 2 in hopes of actually seeing dragon/human interaction...and maybe a new narrator....or a team of narrators.
I think I would have enjoyed this book back when I was a pre-teen boy. Even though I like books from all age groups, I just didn't enjoy this one. In fact I only listened to the first and last 3 hours of the novel, being left feeling that I didn't miss any thing. The narration is pretty bad too.I'd pass on this one if you're an adult.
A great book with a nice story line. I fell in love with Lyric from the start. The narrator could have been better though. His immitation of the female voices was not good at all.
Loved the story after it got going. The problem is just at the climax of the story the book ends. No big deal I'll get the next story in the series. Out to the website and Bingo the next story isn't there. Now it is a waiting game till book w shows up.
